One must admire her persistence. She’s three-years-old and has today decided she doesn’t like trousers. She can’t provide any explanation as to why she doesn’t like trousers today. She normally wears trousers without displaying such contempt for them. Okay, she wanted to wear tights this morning, that was clear. But one can want to wear tights without not wanting to wear trousers. If it was a simple matter of preference, or a dislike of this particular pair of trousers, one could understand that. But is simply

I don’t like trousers!”

For a solid twenty minutes. It feels like forever.
